Farmfresh Fine Foods is committed to ensuring a high standard of ethical and environmental trade practices, including the provision of safe working conditions and the protection of workers’ rights.
Farmfresh Fine Foods operates locally in Australia and in accordance with the guidelines of their said Code of Ethical Policy and expects its Suppliers and Contractors to observe the Code’s provisions and to demonstrate a similar commitment to an ongoing programme. The Code will ensure where necessary, improving, ethical and environmental practices.
All parties to whom this Code applies are required to comply with applicable national and international laws. Where the provisions of this Code afford greater protection than national law, the terms of this Code prevail.
Under Farmfresh Fine Foods Code of Ethics, the following headings are present to cover off on all aspects of the code:
- Employment of appropriate workers
- Working environment
- Hours, pay and benefits
- Respect for the individual
- Trade unions
- Ethical standards
- Environmental standards
- Documentation and inspection
In addition to the Code of Ethics, in 2014 Farmfresh Fine Foods joined SEDEX (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) as a member to further support the ethical and responsible sourcing of goods. It was recognised that the business and the team within were unified with an approach towards the code and allows members to feel that holistically, we are unified in supplying a safe and secure product that was created without unfair and unjust methods.
"It is the mark of the cultured man that he is aware of the fact that equality is an ethical and not a biological principle” ~ Ashley Montagu
